After a string of 12"s on Hyperdub over the last couple of years, Contact, Want, Love, Have is the debut album from Sara Abdel-Hamid a.k.a Ikonika. While CWLH seems to traverse a number of retro-futurist styles, including dubstep, UK funky and garage, '80s synth pop and computer game soundtracks, it remains totally contemporary, coherent and focused. Never obvious, her hyperactive, tough and sparse drums and bright, citric synthesizers splash new shapes and fizzes of emotion all over the place. From the first woozy breeze of the opening track Ikonoklast you can hear one of 2010's most original producers at work.
